I'm Baaaack!

Alas, after a long hiatus, I'm back and better then ever. Like they say, you don't miss it till it's gone. You know you missed me...

There's so much going on right now, I don't know where to start. There are the Spring leagues, which are now almost over and the Summer leagues about to start. Not to mention the mant tournaments Stacey is organizing for the summer. Theres never a dull moment around this office, let me tell you!

So far the spring season has been runnign pretty smoothly, well except for our poor Thursday outdoor players who have been rained and/or snowed out TWO weeks this season. Now they are all scrambling to get their games in before playoffs!

A special thanks goes out to all those teams who braved the frigid temperatures the past few weeks and went out there and played their games!

An another note, my fiance was doing a little Internet searching while "working" (slacker) and he came across this article about a new "reality" show in the Netherlands. Now I'm all for reality TV shows, but this one goes to far... waaaay too far. In a nut shell, The Big Donorshow is about a terminally ill woman who is going to giver away her kidneys to one of three contestants who are currently waiting for kidney transplants. They say that this show is being used to bring awareness to organ donation, others think it is a really bad idea. I tend to lean towards the latter.

One more I jsut have to throw in here:

"For female cheetahs in the Serengeti, the call of the wild is just too hard to resist as new research shows nearly half of their litters are made up of cubs with different fathers."

I'd love to be the guy who's sole job is to figure this stuff out. Beats working in an office all day!

Thats all for me today, I have to get back to work.

All about the Jacksons

Well this is the first blog in a long time, but the blog is back and we have regular updates scheduled. My name is Heather and I am working at the club for the summer!

The spring season is rolling along and we've had our hands full with some unique player concerns that don't deal with players:

- Parents walking their children across a field of slo-pitch players.
- A soccer player kicking a ball out of a field and the ball hitting the windshield of a car and breaking it.
- Players settling a tie game through a dance battle.

In the office, Andrew and Stacey are really excited about the upcoming Michael Jackson Auction. You can be the owner of Michael Jackson awards, pictures, family items, and even his old id card. Andrew has his eyes set on an award he recieved. Not really sure which, just the cheapest one.

Also, Andrew and I stumbled upon this article. Some people are claiming that they have evidence of a real life alien. I wasn't impressed but Andrew was freaking out.

Well, enjoy the warm weather!

Heather :)
